Can I restore data from one user into another user account?

Yes, if you're a domain admin user you can.  If not, contact your domain administrator.  Watch the video below for instructions:


To restore data from one user to another:

*Sign into Spanning Backup as a domain admin.
*Impersonate the user you want to restore from.
*Select the data you're wanting to restore and click the "Restore" button.
*When asked select the domain user that you're wanting the data restored to.

Once the restore is complete that data will be available in the restored to users account.

Team Drives data cannot be restored from one user to another user’s account since Team Drives data is not owned by a specific user. Team Drives data will be restored back into its source Team Drive. If a Team Drive is deleted from Drive, a new Team Drive will be created during the restore.
